Analysis / Bias
In review, Washington Sources has a strong left-wing bias as all stories favor the left and discredit the right. There is the use of loaded language in headlines and articles such as BREAKING: Trump’s Chief Of Staff Just Spilled The Beans On Resignation Story. Washington Sources generally uses credible sources to support their stories, however, there are significant left-biased opinions interjected throughout stories, which can be misleading. A factual search reveals some failed fact checks.
